Golden Colorado real estate tends to command higher prices than many areas in the Denver Metro area, and retain its value due to its proximity to the Mountains, to Denver, and to Boulder. (Location, Location, Location.) Views from Golden homes vary between easterly city views, to southern red-rocks views, tucked away canyon views from Coal Creek Canyon, and some snow-capped mountain views from outlying areas of Golden such as the back side of Lookout Mountain, and the Genessee area. Due to the fact that Golden homes are right up against the mountains, distant whitecap views are rare, and command a high price. Also beware; some areas of Golden overlook I-70, and tend to have a lot of road noise. Be sure to listen to a recording of our teleseminar entitled "4 plagues to avoid when purchasing Colorado Real Estate" Ė road noise being one of the plagues to avoid.
